Five stores are scheduled to open at midnight: these include the Arden Fair, Galleria at Roseville, Vintage Faire Mall, and Fashion Fair outlets in California, as well as the Orland Square shop in Illinois. A greater group, spread across several states, will open at 4AM: Rockingham, King of Prussia, Southdale, Tacoma Mall, Santa Rosa Plaza, Summit, Stoneridge, Southcenter, Smith Haven Mall, South Hills Village, West Town Mall, Pleasant Lane, University Park Mall, Burlington Mall, Fifth Avenue Mall, Lehigh Valley Mall, Woodfield, and Ala Moana.
